SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS:

Please ensure that warehouse entry summaries associated with the warehouse withdrawals are not finalized and the collections for the warehouse withdrawals are only submitted as collection code 002.  A final collection code 092 with a zero amount may be processed on the warehouse entry by CBP, once the final warehouse ledger information is submitted to close out the warehouse entry summary.

An original certificate of quota eligibility (CQE) is required for raw cane sugar entry(s) with country specific allocations for the in-quota duty rate.  The CQE number must be electronically transmitted in ACE and the original certificate may be uploaded via the Document Imaging System (DIS) upon request.  Non-ABI entry summary must be updated in ACE prior to processing collections.
